Bucket Towers

Collect all the pennies you can to get ready for this activity! The challenge is to create a tall and sturdy tower using only straws, tape, string, and a dixie cup as your bucket. After you design your tower, test it to see just how many pennies it can hold. Be sure to revise your prototype after to see if you can make it even sturdier!
